Since 1893, St. Mary’s School has encouraged children to be lifelong learners and leaders. The school’s collaborative approach and family atmosphere are consistent with its mission of being committed to the spiritual and overall academic excellence of its students. The newly opened Early Childhood Campus, serving UPK4, and students entering grades K-2, provides a safe, caring environment, dedicated to academic excellence, within the framework of a classical Catholic Education. As they play, learn, make their own choices, and socialize, young children develop creative and critical thinking, as well as gross and fine motor skills, through active, hands-on exploration.
UPK 4, Grades K – 2. The new Early Childhood Program at the St. Mary’s School in Wappingers Falls offers a free Universal Pre-Kindergarten (UPK) program for four-year-olds, but also a tuition-based Kindergarten-to-Second Grade Multi-Age Room, specifically designed to cater to students who might need a little extra support and attention during this crucial transitional phase.
